Hey guys! So 2012 is going to be MyGeekShow’s year of “Technology Aided Flight” where I’ll focus on going from just flying around the field, to full FPV and waypoint supported autopilot. I’m doing…Continue
I've decided its time to get serious. I've announced my new 5 year project: To fly an RC airplane 3,000 miles to cross the United States.Most of the flight will be FPV style, but 90% of the trip will…Continue
I did an episode on the strength/properties/durability/etc. of Bluecor Fan Fold Foam and Hot Glue to test their ability to be good building materials for some future drone airplane I'll be building.…Continue
NCR18650B: A Lithium Ion battery with a ton of promise! People say it has twice the energy per gram as LiPos... but is that true? Lets test it!
But it doesn't stop there! I want to know how to actually use this on an RC Aircraft, how to charge it, what it's maximum amp draw is, how many watt hours of power does it have, and in the end, can you actually use these on RC…Continue
I wanted to see if I could use a split elevon and some serious mixing to use a split elevon as an airbrake for my flying wing. The Raptor 100 is light and pretty tough, a perfect test platform! Lets try it.
Split the elevons in 2/5 and 3/5 lengths (to compensate for the leverage on the outer wing), added two more servos and some serious mixing on my 9x...
I'm planning on using something similar on my larger, heavier Raptor 140B…Continue
I'm getting closer to gathering all the components for the 140C, but am hitting a budget wall. If you'd like to support the show/USA trip, I've put some of the remaining items I need for "sale" on my website, or really a way to donate/support the trip.
I have to emphas…Continue
The objective was to fly over 60 minutes (1 hour) without stopping to replace or recharge the batteries. This test was to prove that flying at this weight and amp draw configuration was possible. Due it success, the 140c will be able to be constructed with similar characteristics, but be able to carry twice the watt/hours.
To accomplish this 62 minute flight I needed to add…Continue
